Demand for Copper
In our last issue attention was called
to the great growth of copper product
ion This production however has
not equalled the demand which is so
great that all reserve products in this
country and in Europe are exhausted
Notwithstanding the great increase in
the price of copper during the past two
years the production has increased but
about 10 per cent per annum and the
consumption in a greater ratio result
ing in the complete exhaustion of the
reserve as stated The capacity of the
great copper mines of the Lake aud
other regions of the United States are
taxed to their utmost There is im
mediately south of us in our neighbor
ing Republic of Mexico some of the
greatest copper deposits in the world
rich in silver and gold too they are
rapidly being absorbed by Americau
and foreign capital many million dol
lars were invested therein within the
past two years The superior advan
tages that Mexico -affords for profitable
mining are becoming known and ap
preciated In the richest part of ie
copper belt of Mexico the Mines of 101
Progreso Mining Company whose ad
vertisement appears in this issue are
situated In the line of prohtabe in
vestment nothing better could be de
sired and as the Companys policy is
not to limit investments to large suins
but rather to inyite the co operation of
all it is hoped that many will avail
themselves of the opportunity pre
